Holidaymakers took to social media to vent their frustrations.

One described the airport as “carnage” while another said the size of the queue was “disgraceful”.

Our flyer said it took them one hour and 17 minutes to get through security.

It comes after weeks of misery and delays at the airport with some people reporting missing their flights.

The airport finished its £60million “state-of-the-art” security hall upgrade in May after months of construction work.

It will eventually allow passengers to carry liquids of up to two litres in cabin baggage.

But, despite the work being completed, the airport said that “until further notice” passengers would only be able to carry liquids of up to 100ml as “partial regulatory restrictions” were in place.

The airport said the upgrade would allow it to accommodate 18 million passengers by 2033 – up from 12m currently.
